It looks likeIs it an AOSM now as opposed to an AASM?
Hmmm, a 'border protection' medal.....It looks like
"The AOSM succeeds the Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) and the Australian Service Medal (ASM). Operations recognised by these medals will continue to be recognised by the AASM or the ASM, for example Operation SLIPPER".
Australian Operational Service Medal : Since-1975 : Department of Defence
They also wear them in shirtsleeve order....Bloody ugly thing.
Australian Honours and Medals are a complete Soduku of a subject: double and sometimes triple medalling for the same operation, retro awarding medals and unit citations because of single-issue focus groups and, in the case of The Republic of Vietnam Gallantry Cross (also known as the Vietnamese Gallantry Cross, a Unit award), being awarded in the name of a nation state that hadn't existed for nearly 50 years.
